Funding your new career
Most people starting a new career with Flying Fish choose to pay for their training upfront. However, a growing number of customers funding a new career want the option to spread the course fees giving your wallet a bit of breathing space.
Flying Fish is pleased to offer customers on our career courses the option to spread payment over 12 months in the form of an interest-free loan, organised through our partner Duologi.
By keeping more money in your pocket comes in handy when starting a new career.
The loan or finance is available on all selected courses, indicated by our logo.
How does it work?
Complete a simple approval process
Pay Min 10% deposit
Our finance option allows you to pay back your course fees over a 12 month period with your first payment taken one month from the start of your course. The loan is interest-free, with fixed monthly repayments you can keep control of your outgoings.
If your situation changes you are able to pay the loan back in full at any time.
The table below shows an example of the two payment options, paying upfront or finance. In this example, we have taken one of our most popular courses – the Superyacht Deckhand course to compare the two options.
✳ Note. You are able to choose how much deposit you would like to pay, from a minimum of 10% up to a maximum of 90%. By choosing, say 30% deposit (£804) reduces monthly repayments to £156.33 per month
